    Hello!  I’m a new fan of Windows Live Photo Gallery, and a .NET developer (not looking for a job right now though!).  My wife and I have been using Picasa for quite a while, so we’ve amassed a massive amount of photos there, with comments.  When Windows Live Photo Gallery looks at these same pictures, it doesn’t see the comments we created through Picasa.  Is there a way to get this to work?

    Thanks!

    When I create more then one tag on a photo it stores these tags in the keywords field in the file (comma separated). If I look at the properties of this file with multiple keywords through Windows Explorer and click OK after looking at the properties, Windows Live Photo Gallery then treats all these tags as one tag. If I copy the photo from the My Pictures folder and then copy it back (simulating copying existing backed up photos onto my computer) any photo that had multiple tags now only has one tag with all words separated by a comma. Major bug.
